Tuck Everlasting is a great book for seeing how figurative language plays into great writing. As you begin this web-quest, you will want to refresh your memory about what figurative language is.
Here are the forms of figurative language we will focus on as we read :
A simile compares things to one another by using the words 'like' or 'as'. It better helps to describe how something looks, feels, smells, tastes or sounds by comparing the object to something else with which we are familiar.
From Tuck Everlasting: 'The first week of August hangs at the very top of the summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel.'
A metaphor also compares two different things, but it does not use a word of comparison such as 'like' or 'as'.
From Tuck Everlasting: 'The wood was at the center, the hub of the wheel.'
Personification is a form of figurative language in which an animal or object is given human characteristics.
From Tuck Everlasting: 'The house was so proud of itself that you wanted to make a lot of noise as you passed,..'
Alliteration is the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words.
From Tuck Everlasting: 'Winnie clutched her fishing pole, sitting sideways in the stern..'
Onomatopoeia is the formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named (e.g., cuckoo, sizzle ).
From Tuck Everlasting: 'Tick-tock, tick-tock, tick-tock'
Hyperbole is exaggerated statements or claims not meant to be taken literally.
From Tuck Everlasting: 'It was the hottest day yet, so heavy that the slightest exertion brought on a flood of perspiration.'
